Chris Pohl, frontman of the very famous German band Blutengel, has a new solo project called She Hates Emotions. His debut song, “See the Light,” is out now.
He describes the project as “minimal ’80s synthpop.” The song is very catchy. It’s definitely on the gloomier side of classic synthpop, reminding me a bit of Visage or Camouflage, and those “whoa oh oh”s were staples of the ’80s.
